"Peach Pit" Dry Brush Oil 9"x 11"


"Peach Pit" Dry Brush Oil 9"x 11" on 140 lb. paper.  This painting is $180 matted and framed with complimentary shipping inside the U.S. If you are interested please let me know.

"Peach Pit" was a personal challenge to overcome all of the obstacles I run into with the dry brush technique:
  1. Dry brush oil technique limits my abilities to mess up (similar to watercolors).  For example, while I can erase a bit, the oil paint cannot be removed from the paper like I can remove it on canvas or paint over it in a typical oil painting.
  2. With this technique he drawing has to be spot on because there is no going back and "fixing" it like I could in acrylics, graphite, and oil.
  3. Blending is a slow building process, similar to graphite - but again you can't erase easily...so slow and steady. 
Despite these obstacles, the dry brush oil technique has become my new favorite method.  The results are just stunning.

What would you like to see me paint next?
